CPA Music Program

Welcome to Music at Charles P. Allen High School!

We offer one of the top High School Music Programs in Nova Scotia. Charles P. Allen Musicians pride themselves on performance excellence in both band, chamber, and solo settings, using their solid understanding of music theory to perform with more precision or to compose music for any setting, and using listening skills to describe and visualize the music from all across the world. All of these curricular aspects are driven toward setting students at an advantage for a lifelong love of music or for continuing with music studies at a university like Acadia University, Memorial University, or Mount Allison University!


“Music is the social act of communication among people,

a gesture of friendship, the strongest there is”

– Malcolm Arnold
